Ultimate Edition 5.0 LTS won't boot after software update

Have been checking out Ultimate Edition for a couple of months now. Seems to be very well put together and working great but for a few small things.

Anyway, today the Software Update dialog box popped up, so I clicked on Install. When that was done, I clicked the button to reboot.

It goes through a lot of the loading process, then a few dozen of these go by:

Code: Select all
Begin: Running /scripts/local-block ... mdadm: CREATE group disk not found
mdadm: no arrays found in config file or automatically

eventually stopping at this
Code: Select all
ALERT!  /dev/mapper/ultimate--vg-root does not exist.  Dropping to a shell!

and the shell prompt.

Rebooting causes the GRUB screen to come up. No matter which option I choose (direct boot or recovery mode), it just repeats the process above.

Can anyone help me figure out how to get this working again - without losing all of my data in the process?

System is Asus SonicMaster 64 bit laptop (2012) with an Intel Core i3 3217u @ 1.8 GHz, 8GB RAM, 500GB HDD
